Open WhatsApp Web normally and log in when you scan its QR code;
Now, as the image below suggests, use this address as follows: https://wa.me/PhoneNumber;
On the loaded page, click “Continue Chatting”;
Then click on “WhatsApp Web” and wait for the chat screen to load. If you use WhatsApp Desktop on your machine, it will automatically open in this step.

If you prefer a more visual method to start such a conversation in the WhatsApp application, a Google Chrome plugin can help a lot, as it only needs to be configured once. Look how:
Access the WA Web Plus plugin page for WhatsApp in Google Chrome;
On the loaded page, click “Use in Chrome”;
In the message that appears, click “Add extension”;
Then access WhatsApp Web normally;
Next to the Chrome address bar, click the icon for the extension you just installed. If the icon doesn’t appear, make sure it’s not in Chrome’s extension management menu;
On the opened page, under “Personalization”, check the “Allow starting conversations with non-contacts” key;
Now, next to your profile picture, click on the button to add a contact;
Enter the desired cell phone number and click on “Chat”.
